Ready for round #3

In 2014, I had my left bunionectomy fixed. In 2015, I then had surgery for my right one.

Tomorrow I’m finally getting my gallbladder out after years of stomach aches. Honestly, I’m surprised I’m not more anxious about it. I try not to think about it so I think that helps. It also helps that I’ve worked in the operating room setting for over 2 years and am familiar with the procedure. Even better, my mom knows the OR staff and selected my surgical team including anesthesia. For some reason, i can’t imagine being in pain after surgery (😝) but I’m sure there’s going to be some. I’ve already picked my Korean drama of choice (Father is Strange) to keep my mind off my belly aching… wish me luck tomorrow? 

Cheers! Nicole

  1. I have a bunion on my right foot. I always thought it was b/c I had wide feet but nope, my friend said it was a bunion. I’ve researched bunionectomy before. What made you finally decide to do this surgery? What caused your bunions?

    1. My bilateral bunions are hereditary (thanks grandma :)). They weren’t going to get better and they irritated me when I lay down and the side of my feet hit the bed. I got one foot done during one summer, and then the second one during the next summer. Luckily at the time I was a college student so summers were actually OK to bum around. I was just thinking of long term… I didn’t want to take time off work at a future job to get the surgery done. It was like a 6-8 week recovery each time. I do believe there are different approaches to bunion surgery and my foot dr chose the option that needed a longer rest period. Does your bunion bother you? Have you consulted with a foot surgeon? Have a great day!
